Mostly because there's a long list of former ones who've been pretty poor HCs due to the fact that Satan is control freak that gives his assistants very little autonomy. The fact that he's given Kiffin so much freedom is a huge shift in his philosophy and methodology.

With such a long list of successful players and coaches, at a place like Ohio State, it's really difficult. In college football, it might be best to break it into offense and defense. I know this is a cop out, but so what?

Offense (during my lifetime) - Eddie, Pace, Cris Carter, and Troy (although Zeke's probably the best RB in program history). (Predating me) - Chic, Parker, Archie, and Vic.

Defense (lifetime) - Spielman, Hawk, Doss, and Winfield; (predating) - Willis, Stillwagon, Gradishar, and Tatum.

Damn, this is difficult. There are so many legends, you could break this down by position groups or even decade.

I wish Fick and Warriner luck on their futures as HCs and am thankful for their contributions to the program. Hoping that the coaching moves do not affect the Bucks on the recruiting front.

On the bright side, this gives Beck even more responsibility and free reign with the offense!

But he chose Tennessee, not Butch Jones and his flat top.

I certainly hope that's true. Given how many people have already picked up their torches and pitch forks, Butch needs 10 wins next year or he's in serious trouble. This was the worst SEC East arguably in the history of divisional play, and he couldn't win it with by far the most talented and veteran team in the division. How the hell he managed to lose to S Carolina and surrender 45 to Vandy is beyond me.

Akers stay home.

From the way things are looking, it's Dobbins or bust in 2017 and then taking two-three in 2018.

I know many people still point to 2011 and say that the guy can't coach, but I think he'd be a really good HC in the right situation. I do think that he needs to start small and build he way up like Herman. I'm really hoping that he doesn't take the FAU job and can find something a little better, like Cincinnati/Wake Forest type level. Guess we'll just have to wait and see. Truth is, THE OSU is his dream job, and I wouldn't mind seeing him back to lead the program when Urban leaves after he's cut his teeth and proven his ability further with some other programs.
